Audubon Sharon will be hosting a training session for the CT Bird Atlas. The bird atlas is a great way for birders and enthusiasts to take part in censusing and mapping the birds in our state. This training session will begin at 10:30 AM on April 14th and last about 1 and a half hours. So stop on in and learn about this great project and how to join in!
All Connecticut Bird Atlas Volunteers, and anyone else who wants to submit data for the Bird Atlas, are invited to attend this training session led by Volunteer Coordinator Craig Repasz.
Craig will review the Atlas Breeding Protocol, discuss the breeding codes and give technical support for entering data and for navigation. Please come with your questions.
Anyone involved or interested in this project, not just registered volunteers, is invited. Note that the material will be specific to the Bird Atlas and may not appeal to those mainly looking to improve their birding skills.
Any interested person may submit data during the three-year survey, not just registered volunteers. If you’re unfamiliar with the project please visit the website http://www.ctbirdatlas.org/.
Admission is free.
